To take the car or not?

Recommended Posts

Hi again guys,

 

Moving back to UK later this year and wondering if its worth it to take our car. Its not an expensive car - Hyundai Tuscon - but its only 4 years old and just paid off so if it makes sense financially to do it, it would certainly be one less thing to worry about over there. However, something tells me that it wont be a simple matter and there will be hidden costs involved - has anybody been through this process themselves and if so, can they give me some pointers as to whether its worth it and what the process involves?

I just found this website with a quick search.  No idea whether they are any good, but they do have a calculator on their front page which would give you an idea.

Maybe ask the specialist on the three moving your car to OZ - he might have an idea about the pros and cons of taking it back too
